Happy April Fool’s Day everyone! I have been trying to come up with something to post about but I really can’t think of anything interesting! It’s driving me crazy! So I started browsing on the internet and came across a few questions I thought I could answer in a blog post!
Question 1: Why do you blog? How long have you been blogging?
I blog because I always have too much on my mind. By blogging, I’m able to type out everything I am thinking and it helps me get my thoughts out. I always feel so much better after I blog, especially if I am stressed, or if a really great thing just happened and I want to share it. Blogging frees my mind up for even more thoughts to enter, but that’s okay! I’d rather have an overactive mind than an inactive one! I started blogging on Xanga around 7th grade I think, which would be when I was about 13 years old. As soon as I started blogging, I realized what an outlet it could be. I enjoyed writing out my thoughts, the good and bad ones, as well as keeping up with friends and their thoughts. I’ve always loved writing and a blog is just another way to do that! I also blog because I love sharing things with others. I hope that everyone who reads my blog enjoys learning about me and about things in my life!
Question 2: Do you take part in Black Friday shopping? What deals have you gotten on Black Friday?
Let me just start by saying, I LOVE BLACK FRIDAY! Shopping is a guilty pleasure of mine, always has been and probably always will be, so I love a day devoted to shopping and getting “good deals”. The reason I say “good deals” is because I don’t always think the prices on Black Friday are that great compared to any other time of the year. It just depends on what store it is. This past Black Friday, my friend and I traveled to many stores beginning at midnight on Black Friday and we did find some pretty good deals! Honestly, I can’t remember all of the deals right off. I know I got some pretty cheap clothes at Old Navy, some DVDs from Wal-Mart and Target, and a dog crate for my baby girl for half off (which is a great deal because she is a big girl and requires a big, expensive crate)! Unfortunately, this past Black Friday I was suffering from some eye problem. I don’t know if it was Pink eye or what, but on one of our stops I gave in and bought some Pink Eye relief eye drops. I was also sick in general, so dealing with crowds was not a pleasant experience. Another unpleasant experience this past Black Friday was the checkout line at Old Navy. I have never stood in a checkout line for that amount of time! I don’t remember right off how long we waited, but it was over an hour I think! It’s funny how people are so determined to get these good deals, when in reality you’re not saving that much half of the time. I know there are good deals on electronics but there are similar sale prices on clothing on other days as well. Black Friday is fun for me though because I get to people watch in addition to buying things. People watching is one of my favorite past times.. There are some interesting people out there!
Question 3: What is the most spontaneous thing you’ve ever done?
For my high school graduation present, my parents paid for me and two of my best friends to go to the beach, along with my mom. I had just turned 18 in April, and graduation was at the end of May. While we were at the beach, we had the idea that we were going to do something spontaneous. Now, I don’t think that by planning on doing something spontaneous that it was considered “spontaneous” anymore because we planned it all out. But at the time, we were so stoked to do something spontaneous that we talked about it for a few days and on the final day there, we followed through with our spontaneity. I decided to get my tragus pierced. We found a tattoo & piercing shop and I was so excited to be able to sign for myself! I got in the chair ready to be pierced and when he stuck the needle through my ear I thought I was going to faint. It was extremely painful! Come to find out, he didn’t do it properly, or with the right size needle. Also, the piercing was done at an angle so it is about impossible to change out the ring. I found this out by the lady who pierced my nose last year and also my bellybutton when I was 15. That may not have been the most “spontaneous” thing that I have done but it is the funniest story of a spontaneous thing. It also taught me that I shouldn’t be so spontaneous because I want to know what I’m getting. Picking a random tattoo shop in Florida probably wasn’t the best idea, but then again I picked a random tattoo shop in Georgia, but just had better luck I suppose.
Those are the only questions I am going to answer right now. I’ll do some more in the near future! Hope you enjoy reading my answers!
